Reportedly enlisted as potential replacement fighter for UFC 94 in the event that Karo Parisyan was forced to withdraw from his welterweight bout against Dong Hyun Kim, prospect Rick Story never got his chance to make his Octagon debut as Parisyan was able to stay on the card and record a decision victory over Kim.
Despite not getting to fight at UFC 94, sources have informed FiveOuncesOfPain.com that Story will get a chance to compete in the Octagon on a future card after signing a four fight contract with the promotion.
Story, 7-2, came onto the UFC’s radar while on the heels of a current six fight winning streak. His most recent win took place this past September during an Elite Warriors Championship event in which he recorded a first round submission over Brandon Melendez, a veteran from the fifth season of The Ultimate Fighter.
A strong wrestler who hails from Portland, Oregon, Story also has recorded notable victories over Wesley Welch, Jake Ellenberger, and Ryan Healy.
